Hi Forum

We have an AD integration where users are being validated with username and password from AD. This will lead to automatic generation off an email address which is based on the login name and our domain name. See this example:

User login name in AD = john
Full name in AD = john doe
Existing email address = jd<_at_>

This will lead to an export from AD to Kerio, where an automatic mail address is generated like = john<_at_>

The export can not see the existing email address. This is also acceptable if one could add an email alias, and configure this as the primary email address. But this is not possible from the configuration, at least I can not do it.

I know it is possible from the web interface and maybe also from KOC, but I would rather do it on the server.

Any ideas ??

I don't agree, this solution doesn't work on my VmWare appliance. What ever changes I made do not change anything in the email address on my imported users. I have tried the following correction in
But the email field is still constructed as the login@domainname, but it should be initials<_at_>domainname. I have changed both values under user and group.

In between my testing I stop and restart the Keriomail service, but it seams as though it does do any difference. And it seams to met that even though the solution could work, it is a workaround that can not be describe as the right way to do it. Kerio should instead use the mail field in the AD if it is not empty.
